The Passing of Renowned Health Technology Assessment Scientist Dr. Murray Krahn

It is with great sorrow that we acknowledge the passing of Dr. Murray Krahn on July 1, 2022.

An internationally renowned health technology assessment (HTA) scientist, physician at the University Health Network in Toronto, professor at the University of Toronto, and founding director of the Toronto Health Economics and Technology Assessment (THETA) Collaborative, Dr. Krahn was internationally recognized as a thought leader in the intersection of evidence-based medicine, health economics, and health care decision-making.

Dr. Krahn was an educator and mentor who valued time with students and the HTA community equally.

A 2014 recipient of the CADTH Dr. Jill M. Sanders Award of Excellence in Health Technology Assessment, an active contributor to the CADTH Lecture Series, and a member of the CADTH Health Economics Working Group, Dr. Krahn will be greatly missed by his peers at CADTH and in the wider HTA community.
